Many amputees in third world countries lack resources and opportunity.
We believe in equal access to prosthetic & orthotic services that facilitate independence through mobility. We recognize the dual hardships of living in poverty with a disability & stand in solidarity with those who are made to suffer from an unequal distribution of care. We understand that disability is caused by broken devices and broken healthcare systems – not broken bodies – and we work to increase the mobility, visibility, & dignity of all those marginalized by lack of resources.
Create a voice for those living in the shadow of disability.
This film will show the world that amputees are not disabled by a missing limb, but a missing prosthesis.
On July 29th, 2017, an expedition of ten American elite athletes with disabilities along with twelve Ecuadorian amputees will attempt to summit Cotopaxi as a physical symbol of the power of mobility.
The team is made up of an incredible group of individuals including Chad Jukes, one of the first Veteran amputees to summit Everest & former governor of Maryland, Martin O'Malley.
The making of this film will empower amputees & shift the perception of disability in Ecuador.
Creating this film will show the world the power of mobility and what is possible when amputees are given access to proper care. The call to action will drive donations to The Range of Motion Project and provide prosthetic equipment and resources for generations to come. Every donor who gives $250+ will receive a special thanks in the film credits on our global film tour.
